Toyota RAV4 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
about to buy an auction car that says damaged undercarriage.
First it was the ECM, now it's the codes from the catalytic converter. I'm reading on here that there is a software update. So....?
I was sitting in my car with it running (about 85 degrees outside) I looked and noticed that the lights on the dash were on but the air was still blowing. I turned the key to the off position and tried to re-start the car, it would turn the lights on the dash back on, my air was blowing, the radar detector came on but the car would not click or crank it made no sound. I tried moving the gear shifter to neutral and back to park still would not make a sound. After about 30 minutes it clicked once while I tried to start it. After about 15 more minutes it was cranking but would not turn over or fire. Tried tapping the starter as best we could but it did not start it either. Finally got some jumper cables and after 4 tries and being hooked up about 5-10 minutes it finally started (but was idling hard and kind of shaking) and died 2 more times before I made it home about 5 miles away. Both times it restarted by being jumped off with cables. Since I got home it has started fine and have had no issues but it has not left the driveway. My husband wondered if it might have been a bad censor or maybe he got bad gas that clogged the fuel filter, I was told it was probably the starter. Just looking for advice on what this might be!
The light is above the hood release, on the left side of the steering wheel. The book sez it is the lock release. Why is it staying on? And how do I get it off?
motor surges really bad with the air conditioner on. It is really bad while driving that I have to turn ac off. Not quite as bad with just headlights on alone. could this be a alt. problem
It's difficult for it to rev. Why?
I recently had a diagnostic test because CEL, VSC, and 4WD/TRAC (Check Engine Light, Vehicle Stability Control, and 4-Wheel Drive/Traction Control lights went on. The code was P0138-I had the Bank 1 Sensor 2 replaced yet the lights above went back on in a day or 2.
I read that the problem may be a defective charcoal canister filter which costs about 1500.00 to repair. How can I determine what the real issue is before dishing out that much $$$. Will Toyota pay for those repairs if it is a defective canister filter?
Cruise control quit, then would not start next morning, jumped thought it was battery, lights shinning but not on, changed fuse, it started, would not engage out of park, no radio, wipers or break lights. Never had problem before. Just changed brake pads a week ago, should have no effect.
Driving home from work my wife had the car lose power and the mentioned lights came on. Now every time I start the car those lights come on and stay on. The engine is "sputtering" for lack of a better word. Please help?
Car was checked by a friend /mechanic he's not sure why the vsc/trac would come on. Codes are for the evap system can you shed some light on this problem
I nedd the third row seat
I had my front pads and rotars replaced by a mechanic friend in Oct 2014, now only 6 months later a well known auto repair place is telling me they put the wrong size on and they need to be replaced? I went to Autozone and they are telling me there is just one size available. Who's right?
My fan only works on the highest setting then stops
Cleaned the surrounding area and I am pretty sure it's one of the high pressure hose lines leaking power steering fluid.
After several resets by dealer & self and replacing spark plugs (not spark coils) still getting codes. Dealer only seeing misfire codes 1 cyl at a time; I am now getting the multiple random DTC and several individual. Engine very rough on cold starts & throwing misfire codes then. On cleared hot starts is fine until heavy load or high rpm acceleration, sometimes won't shift to 4th. Get 1 sec flash check engine and rough rpm. Since all cyl affected suspect fuel or vac leak. Vehicle has 108,000 miles. Have run fuel inj cleaner in one tank, now running dry-gas in another tank at dealer recommendation. Can't find reliable info on fuel filter replacement. Vacuum leak possible too? Getting no other DTC's. Thoughts?
pleas help to repair it or know which part maybe need to check .
this problem is worst with the air on , but is very noticeable at highway speeds as well as idle. but turn off fan swithch and its ok
TURBO IS FINE 107K MILLIAGE ENGINE POWER IS OK WHEN EVER I START THE CAR IT ALWAYS HAPPENS EVEN WHEN I DRIVE IN EVERY GEAR.
Also, will I absolutely need to replace engine mounts as a part of this repair? How much should I expect to pay for this?
